Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Standard

As Vincent, a man recently succumbed to the irresistible beauty of the game's titular diversion, players find themselves swept into a treacherous love triangle. Catherine's core themes-those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terror-filled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent's growing sense of anxiety. It is an experience wholly unlike any to come before it, and is certain to leave gamers talking and thinking about Vincent's tribulations long after the credits have rolled.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Catherine is on par with Bayonetta in my eyes--not because they both feature large-breasted women of extreme attractiveness, but rather because they are MORE than their mammaries.

As a disclaimer, I have not played it, but have rather spent the past few nights watching my boyfriend of several years play through it. I can honestly say that the game is just as fun to watch as it is to play. The two distinct worlds of the game are reality and the nightmare. Reality consists of beautifully orchestrated cutscenes and anime segments where Vincent, a down-trodden, generally pathetic man-boy stumbles through his life. What makes the real world stand on its own when compared to the horror of the nightmare is its ability to accurately and humanely treat with its actors; all of the people Vincent meets are human, not characters, with human feelings, emotions, and reactions. The writing is top-notch, and the translation perfectly suited to the American audience in its ability to tag our euphemisms and sayings without sounding thrown in.

In the nightmare, Vincent is rendered down to his underwear and forced to climb through an increasingly complex series of puzzles. You pull and push, slide and jump, dangle and haul your way through each level, working in three dimensions to try and reach the top and salvation. Along the way you are helped by your fellow travellers, who will give you hints and techniques. Interestingly enough your actions in the rest areas have an effect on the survival of your fellow sheep--ignore one random character too long, and they will disappear from the bar and the world entirely.

What has struck me the most about Catherine is how well it plays with my mind and emotions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good game, but kind of a pain. July 26, 2011
By D.M.
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I haven't finished the game yet, but I'll go ahead and post up a short review for people considering the game.

The Good: This game is different. It broaches a subject matter not common in games, the graphics are anime/cel-shaded. (Like Valkyria Chronicles or Borderlands, if you're not sure what that is.) The story is interesting, and the main character is a pretty likable guy. From what I understand, the choices you make in the game drive you towards one of the girls and several different endings, and it's actually similar to the paragon/renegade system used in Mass Effect 2, except there's only one meter for both girls.

The Bad: The puzzle gameplay is frustrating. Honestly, I don't mind hard games, or complicated puzzles, but I'd like enough time to do them. With Catherine, you often have a giant nightmare racing up to smash you, so you end up retrying a lot. Also, you have a limited amount of continues. (but don't worry, you can get more) Then again, when you finally do get it, there's a sense of accomplishment that you won't get from a lot of the way too easy games that are on the market today. Honestly I don't think it's way too hard-just a little. Another simple tip that helped me alot-talk to your fellow sheep. You can move your meter and you learn new strategies for getting up the blocks.

EDIT: Now that I'm farther into the game, I'd like to add a little more detail. There's more to the levels than the blocks slowly falling, or some giant horror chasing you, you'll also have to contend with enemies smacking you around, boss special attacks, (so far I've had getting knocked down, and getting my controls switched to backwards), and trap blocks.

5.0 out of 5 stars So happy! August 1, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is exactly the type of game that would usually get stuck in Japan and never released in the US but I am stoked that Atlus took the risk to release it here. When I first purchased Catherine I was a bit worried the it would play like L.A. Noir or Heavy Rain. Although I loved both titles after I had finished each one I felt as though I didnt really play a game but more watched an interactive movie that most people could complete with their eyes closed. Catherine is anything but that, the main gameplay is centered around giant block puzzles in the main characters nightmares. I know the idea of puzzles seems tedious but I had a blast completing them and I am not a puzzle game fan at all.

PROS
-Soundtrack is awesome!
-Graphics and gameplay feel very unique.
-Dark interactive story with many different endings that sucks you in.
-fun puzzle gameplay.
-Great voice acting.
-Replay value, after you complete the game there is a fun challenge mode that appears. I am currently running through a sencond time to see the different endings.

CONS
-I have read many people describe the game as too diffficult but I disagree. It makes you think, but you are allowed many retrys and even have a back button that lets you retrace your moves. Thats not to say that you should choose the "hard" difficulty but I found the normal challenge level to be just right (no shame in choosing easy though).

Overall I love it, and I dont think you have to be a anime or puzzle fan to enjoy. If you are looking for a fresh feeling game with great characters and gameplay check this out! Or download the demo on xbox live before you buy it.

I bought for the erotic appeal and found nothing about it to be appealing. Just a simple jumping from one block to another game.
